Faith organizations want to build affordable housing communities - let's help now
Senate Bill (SB) 4, the Affordable Housing on Faith Lands Act, would make building affordable housing easier, faster and cheaper on land owned by faith-based institutions. Congregations in our county are planning projects and need this bill. For the fact sheet clickhere.
SB 4 will be voted on in the State Senate any day now. Please urge your Senator to vote in favor of the bill when it comes to the floor soon.
Sample communication: “I support SB 4 to help build more affordable housing on faith owned lands. My faith organization in Contra Costa County supports getting homes built to help our neighbors. I urge an aye vote on the floor.”
The Multi-faith ACTION Coalition has supported bills like SB 4 during past legislative sessions but they fell short of the support needed to pass. Let's get it passed this year! Help us by contacting your Senator and sharing this email with others and urging them to do the same.
